Woodware Design Team - Just One Layer

This week's challenge is called "Just One Layer". Easy I thought!! But no, definitely not so easy!! I think we spend a lot of time adding layers to projects, that it is hard to get back to basics!!
I decided to use my new Dreamweaver stencil LJ906 Maple Leaves for my card.

Dreamweaver Maple Leaves
  • To start with I measured 1.5cm in from each edge of my 15cm square card blank. 
  • I masked off this area with post-it notes and sponged shades of orange and red inks to make the background.
  • I used a circle mask to create the setting sun.
  • I then stencil embossed the maple leaves onto the front of the card.
  • I used shades of reds and browns pigment inks and a stencil brush to colour the leaves.
  • To finish off I splattered paint from a Pearl Ex micacolour palette. The one I used is called Vintage, which has some lovely autumnal shades in it.
Close up to see paint splattering.
 I thought this would make a nice retirement card. I am last this week to post for the Woodware DT. Be sure to check out what my fellow team mates did earlier this week.

    2. Ooh, this is gorgeous. LOVE those colours and the leaves, which are literally 'outside the box'. Stunning effect and the splatters just unify everything. Beautiful work x

    3. Why do you make the splats artistic and when I try they are splodges?

    4. Beautiful and I love the colours, x
